    Let me start off with I do not work for CT or am an ex Vitran. I was behind a CT truck tuesday eve June 3 rolling into the scales at Jay,Maine on I95. Felt bad for the driver. He was picked right out and taken around back. Seemed to be targeted. Anyway, I saw 3 violations just following.

    Missing left mudflap
    Dangling air tank. Seemed to be on by one bracket and the lines.
    Placards. The rear door was flying one. But not the 3 other sides.
    And I dont think the driver was belted when he passed me

    After reading this forum, seemed a bit overblown. To an outsider.But I guess not.

    It's ironic that you say this, I am in PA and this morning on my way to the gym ( I'm retired I have lots of time) I saw a truck riding the centerline and occasionally crossing it, when I got closer I waited to see if he would get out of the left lane stayed behind him for about a mile and finally passed him on the right. didn't notice anything in particular other than the truck was a big deathtrap, looked like something a container hauler would sell, way past used up. yep had Vitran on the doors. I watched in my mirror for about another mile, sure wouldn't want my family around the truck or driver. True bottom feeder company

    That's because ct's safety score is so bad that when they go through a scale they get pulled in.
